Watcher In The Water - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watcher_in_the_Water

Description

Want to know when the page at a given URL changes? The Watcher in the Water will tell you over Jabber; just create a ~/.watcher/config.yml file and toss watcher_in_the_water into your crontab!

Issues

XMPP4R takes a really long time to authenticate with my Jabber server. Maybe it's just me though… No idea. This shouldn't run more than once an hour or so, whatever; shouldn't matter.

Install

$ sudo gem install technomancy-watcher_in_the_water --source=http://gems.github.com

TODO

  • Finish live tests?

  • Just send a diff over IM?

  • Only look at a given XPath?
